Second week into the #myselfiescrapbook project and I'm still loving it. (Find part one HERE!) I've been thinking more about what my pictures are portraying about myself this week. Are they showing the things that I like overall or just something I happen to like at the moment? Are the photos going to be fairly timeless or are they totally going to be ridiculously dated in a year or two? Are they something that truly represent me?
With the prompt this week, from where I stand, I've had to think a little bit more about capturing my life and my personality in a different way. I want to be able to show what my life is like at this time, motherhood, creativity, exploring, learning, and yet still feeling like I haven't even quite figured out who I am exactly at the same time. The reality is, as I was thinking about my book today and some of the things I want to include other than just photos, I realized that while I'm getting closer to 30, about to have my third child, been married for eight years, graduated from college five years ago, I still don't quite know what "defines" me. Do I even want this to include what "defines" me? Am I totally over thinking this entire thing? Should I just relax a little and just include the things that make up "me" right now as I am, because that is what I'm feeling I need to do.
Maybe I'm having a rough day today or something, but part of me doesn't even really know if I know makes up "me" right now, as I am, at this stage in life.
